Description for Hidden Valley

Hidden Valley...another one of Los Angeles' "hidden" gems. Hidden Valley is located in Ventura County, just north of the L.A. County line. The city is bordered by Lake Sherwood, Newbury Park, and at its highest point in the Santa Monica mountains, Sandstone Peak. There are approximately 60 homes in Hidden Valley, 10 of which are located in the gated "White Stallion" community. Lots in Hidden Valley are a minimum of 20 acres. This sets the scene for some pretty impressive gentleman's ranches and world renowned equestrian centers.

Hidden Valley is an extremely affluent, yet little known location. Much of Hidden Valley, including nearby Sherwood Country Club (where Tiger hits the links when he visits L.A.) was developed by billionaire David Murdock. Mr. Murdock repeatedly makes Forbes Magazine's "wealthiest people on the planet" list. He currently resides on a 2,000 acre property overlooking some of his accomplishments. The movie industry loves Hidden Valley! Lake Sherwood, still to this day a hugely popular location for filming, was originally known as "Lake Canterbury". This 165 acre lake got its name change in 1921 after the original Robin Hood, starring Douglas Fairbanks, hit the silver screen. The "Enchanted Cottage" used in the movie by the same name still lies on the shore of Lake Sherwood. Much of the film Seabiscut was filmed here. Hidden Valley was also the location of Greg Sumner's ranch on the popular Knot's Landing TV series. More recently, “It’s Complicated”, starring Meryl Streep was filmed at a 56 acre ranch in Hidden Valley.

Driving through Hidden Valley feels more like Vermont than Los Angeles. "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" meets "The Sound of Music". Because Hidden Valley is only 30 miles from Los Angeles and Hollywood, many famous actors, athletes and musicians still call Hidden Valley home. Tom Selleck, Ellen DeGeneres, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, and Wayne Gretsky, all own estates here.

There are many world-class dressage training facilities available in Hidden Valley, including the prestigious Edith Stephens & Patricia Harris Dressage Training Barn. Close by you will find Foxfield Riding Academy. Foxfield offers boarding facilities, lessons for all ages (English and Western), and a summer camp where girls from all over the world attend.

Hidden Valley enjoys a cooler climate than some valleys in Los Angeles due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. The average high in January is 66 degrees, July just 74 degrees. Shoot right through Decker Canyon (US Route 23) and you will land at the northern end of Malibu's beaches. The 101 Freeway is easily accessible from either end of Hidden Valley. Horses are not the only blue ribbon winners around here. Children attend schools within the Conejo Valley Unified School District, a regular national blue ribbon school award winner.
